  • I've got a chip on my shoulder with you name on it
    Knock it off
    So don't just stand there foolin' if you don't want it
    Knock it off
    I say you're either a lover or you are a liar
    So don't you push too hard
    You're playin' with fire

    Baby, make your move
    Step across the line
    Touch me one more time
    Come on, dare me
    I want to take you on
    I know I can't lose
    I'll be loving you if you just dare me

    Looks like you're lookin' for trouble
    And I'd say you found it
    You found it
    You'll have to come right through me
    There's no way around it
    You found it
    I hope that lean hungry look means what it's saying
    'Cause I'm just sittin' on ready, ready and waiting

    Baby, make your move
    Step across the line
    Touch me one more time
    Come on, dare me
    I want to take you on
    I know I can't lose
    I'll be loving you if you just dare me

    If there's any truth behind your intentions
    This night's gonna end up on fire (you better believe it)
    You better believe it
    Oh, dare me, dare me, dare me

    Baby, make your move
    Step across the line
    Touch me one more time
    Come on, dare me
    I want to take you on
    I know I can't lose
    I'll be loving you if you just dare me

    Baby, make your move
    Step across the line
    Touch me one more time
    Come on, dare me
    I want to take you on
    I know I can't lose
    I'll be loving you if you just dare me

    Baby, make your move
    Step across the line
    Touch me one more time
    Come on, dare me
    I want to take you on
    I know I can't lose
    I'll be loving you if you just dare me Writer/s: DAVID EUGENE INNIS, SAM LORBER
